Yes, we print on FSC paper. This means the paper originates from well-managed forests, which are environmental-friendly, social responsible, and economic viable. We print with soy-based inks, which contain no harmful ingredients. To keep the carbon footprint down, we are printing with a trusted top-quality environmentally conscious printing partner in Europe and not in China. Also, this way, shipping the books from printer to fulfillment center is fast and less expensive. Finally, for manufacturing and shipping, we do not use any plastic packing. We use couriers that work carbon neutral when delivering our packages.
